The Voice Plant Report: Tony Vincent, Charlotte Sometimes, Anthony Evans

Here it tis! This week’s The Voice plant report! We all know that the NBC hit singing competition is all about giving failing musical artists a second chance.  Some of these artists, like 39 year old Tony Vincent, have such a long resume, you wonder why they would appear on a cheesy singing competition. Especially one that involves revolving chairs.  And one that will get you on TV but won’t help your entertainment career (See: Colon, Javier).

For artists who have been knocking around the business for awhile, it’s worth a shot, I suppose.

Today’s featured Voice contestants are Broadway star Tony Vincent, Singer songwriter Charlotte Sometimes and Gospel singer, Anthony Evans.

Like I said, Tony Vincent is the contestant that surprises me the most.  You’d think the guy has made enough connections at this point to break into the pop world after a long career on the stage. Maybe his age, 39, is a problem.  He’s got a big theatrical voice that would have been perfect in the rock era, but I don’t know where he fits into the current pop landscape.

His impressive resume includes:  Beginning his career as a CCM artist at Belmont University! Performing on Broadway in Rent, in a film remake of Jesus Christ Superstar, almost 2 years as Galileo Figaro in Queen’s musical, We Will Rock You on London’s West End. And he originated the role of St. Jimmy in Green Day’s American Idiot on Broadway in 2010. (Wiki)

Vincent has released four solo albums: Love Falling Down (1993), Tony Vincent (1995), One Deed (1997), and a five-song EP entitled A Better Way (2007), a collaboration with platinum-selling producer Adam Anders (Glee’s musical director) and songwriter Nate Campany. Check out one of his CCM hits, “Out of My Hands” below

Charlotte Sometimes

Charlotte Sometimes was adopted by her parents Hartson and Tracy Poland. She released a major label record, W and the Both of Us on Geffen Records in May 2008. That year, she performed the entire 2008 Warped Tour. Her song, “How I Could Just Kill A Man” was featured on the Warped Tour 2008 Tour Compilation. (Wiki). Unlike Tony Vincent, we didn’t learn of Charlotte’s history in the business. Instead, we got a backstory about how her jaw disease threatened her singing career.

Anthony Evans

Lastly, Anthony Evans is the son of TV Evangelical, Tony Evans. But Anthony has his own gospel career going that includes multiple CDs such as Home, Letting Go, and Even More. He has collaborated with Grammy Award winning singer Kirk Franklin, who was backstage at his audition. Idol alum, Melinda Doolittle, also knows him personally. (Wiki)

Here are a couple of performances from Anthony.
